The Board of Cooperative Educational Services is pleased to announce that forty Career and Technical Education students were inducted into the National Vocational Technical Honor Society.
The Honor Society only inducts a select group of individuals into its society each year. Part of the induction process is to go through an extensive referral and interview process in order to be considered for this honor. This year ten percent of Career and Tech population made it into this distinct group.
The Sullivan County BOCES Career and Technical Education Center offers Sullivan County juniors and seniors a choice of over fifteen career and technical courses, as well as pre-professional programs. Career and Tech students not only earn credits toward their high school diploma but also gain valuable hands on experience in a specific career. Most of the programs also offer the opportunity to earn college credits. Among the wide variety of programs offered at the BOCES are: Animal Science, Auto Body, Auto Mechanics, Broadband Academy, Career Opportunities, Computer Networking, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Construction/Electrical Technologies, Early Childhood, Health Occupations, New Vision Health, Natural Resources, Public Safety Services, Precision Machining, as well as three new programs Hospitality and Tourism, Innovative Design and Welding. The Career & Tech Center also offers a Pre-Tech Program for 9th and 10th grade students.
In addition to the courses offered, students are part of SkillsUSA, an organization for trade, industrial, technical and health occupation students, which conducts contests on the local, state and national levels, in which students demonstrate their occupational skills, public speaking abilities, and leadership potential.
